RAJA AMPAT BOAT RENTAL – SORONG TO SORONG

Raja Ampat is a spectacular archipelago, located northwest off New Guinea in Indonesia’s West Papua province and consists of more than 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals and is a perfect destination for unforgettable and unique Indonesia yacht charter vacations in South-East Asia. The archipelago was named after the four major islands: Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo.

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat

Sorong is a coastal city in the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua and is known as the gateway to the Raja Ampat Islands. The islands are rich with coral reefs and are at the heart of the world’s coral reef biodiversity. Charter guests on an Indonesia luxury rental boat will find the surrounding area and the islands incredibly beautiful. It is said that the area casts a spell on all who visit!

In the Misool Archipelago, ZEN will take you on a journey through the ethereal “Gua Sacral” ancestral caves of Tumulol, a former burial site of the indigenous Papuans. Another spectacular destination to visit is located at the Southeast end of Misool and is one of the very few places on Earth that can be truly called ‘Paradise Islands’. This enchanting chain of islands carves the entire area into hundreds of narrow channels and inlets, which hide tiny lagoons, coves, high cliffs and limestone overhangs, caves, jagged rocks as well as endless pristine beaches. This area is also perfect for diving with the underwater world teeming with life.

Uninhabited islets and turquoise waters of Fam Archipelago are excellent for kayaking or simply strolling the perfect white sandy beaches. Some of the great diving spots in this area include Melissa’s Garden in the Lagoon Penemu or Tembok Wofoh.

Wayag Archipelago consists of numerous tiny islets that over years have eroded by the relentless motion of the tides and now resemble an armada of flying saucers. Here you can enjoy a cruise on one of Zen’s tenders, kayaks or jet skis and pay visit to the beautiful Wayag Lagoon with a magical maze of limestone karst ‘gumdrop’ islands adorned with pitcher plants and wild orchids. If you love hiking, you could climb the Wayag Peak and enjoy the spectacular views.

Another fabulous place to dive is the Dampier Strait. Here you can spend some time diving down to the shallow sandy bottom and wait for the giant mantas to pass overhead, or swim with these gentle giants at the surface.

There are unlimited possibilities and places to discover on a Raja Ampat yacht rental aboard ZEN. Take advantage of this offer and experience this incredible journey and a holiday of a lifetime.  This special price includes: the exclusive use of the boat and the crew, insurance, all meals as specified in the itinerary, beach dinners, beach parties, transfer from and to the hotel/airport, some water sports: kayaks, snorkelling, fishing, on-board Wi-Fi and entertainment system and harbour fees.

Photos: Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht Swan 115-002 moved to assembly yard

December 15, 2014

Currently under construction, the 35-metre sailing yacht Swan 115-002 was moved from Nautor‘s lamination facilities in Kållby to Nautor BTC on December 11, 2014. The distance is about 16 km and the transportation was challenging. Traffic signs needed to be taken down in crossroads and it completely stopped the traffic at times, due to the fact that superyacht Swan 115-002 is wide. The logistic team brought her safely to Nautor BTC, and she is currently in assembly, side-by-side her sister ship, luxury yacht Swan 115-001. Below are the photos from the transportation of the second Swan 115 yacht, released by Nautor’s Swan ClubSwan.
